Kaalita is an exporter of fine bronze icons from India. Their specialty is the reproduction of antique bronze religious statues of India’s Chola Dynasty.The iconic bronzes of the Chola Period are among the world’s greatest religious art; however they are much more than just superb examples of fine Indian art. Unique among bronze religious statues, these exquisite figures have been worshipped since the ninth century as the living embodiment of Hindu gods and goddesses.
 
The Indian bronze statues in the collection of Kaalita, evoke a dignified sensuous grace, elegance and beauty which echo that divine presence.Kaalita’s pieces are cast by hand in village workshops using a lost wax process unchanged in a thousand years. Age-old techniques, and a painstaking attention to finish and detail, ensure Kaalita’s bronzes are virtually indistinguishable from the antique Chola originals. If you look closely at these icons, you’ll see Chola bronzes do not literally represent the mortal human body; rather they are inspired by spiritualisation and the cosmic beauty.
 
Many poses commonly found in these Chola bronze sculpture are drawn from Yoga. Another source for poses and gestures in Chola sculpture is Indian classical dance which evolved in Hindu temple ritual and in performances at royal courts. Given below is a small sample of the huge collection of Chola bronze icons that Kaalita has. If you want to purchase these items, you may contact Kaalita at the address given below.
